Founded and led by James Lee Witt, a renowned leader in addressing many of the largest and most complex disaster preparedness, response, and recovery challenges since 1993, AG Witt, LLC is an international emergency management consulting firm that traces its roots to 2001. After completing eight years as Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), James Lee Witt founded Witt Associates and began providing emergency management consulting services to eligible recipients and subrecipients. In 2015, James Lee founded Witt Global Partners and reorganized in 2019 to form AG Witt, LLC.
